Regarding the traffic outlook for 2022, CEO Schulte explained: “The situation for our бизнес will remain highly volatile and dynamic in 2022. At this stage, no one can reliably predict how the pandemic will evolve over the coming months. The related – and often inconsistent – travel restrictions will continue to put a heavy strain on the aviation industry. Despite these uncertainties, we are taking an optimistic view of the year ahead. We are expecting air travel demand to rebound noticeably again in the spring.”
Fraport Group’s airports around the globe showed a mixed picture during the 2021 year. All of the international locations recorded varying growth rates compared to the weak 2020 reference year, with the exception of Xi’an in China. Traffic recovered much faster at airports focused on сайёҳӣ traffic, especially during the summer season. Compared with the pre-crisis level of 2019, some Group airports in the international portfolio continued to report significant declines.
